This week I decided to use (mostly) pictures of birds. I was looking through my archive searching the number three and found I had pictures of three ducks and three goldfinches so I decided to see if I had any other groups of three birds. I admit to cheating a bit with the Galahs.
As I mentioned in an earlier post it has been cold here. This morning as I waited outside for my ride I snapped a few pictures with my phone. We had a really big frost this morning which didn’t clear until well after 9 am. These were taken at around 8:30 am. In fact, when Donna arrived to pick me up I was unable to close the car door after getting in. Neither of us had ever seen that before.
While I was waiting I caught the local garbage recycling van in the act of emptying a bin. Mine were not out as there was not much in either rubbish or recycle bin. On my own, I find I don’t need to put them out every week.
Two of my favourite subjects for this week’s challenge, anything to do with ships and the waterfront and a couple of trains.
I’ve practically been in hibernation this past week. It has been quite cold and apart from going to and from the Op Shop or out for coffee with friends I’ve really not been anywhere or done anything worthy of note. In the evenings I’ve curled up with the laptop while most of my photo archive lives on a hard drive attached to the desktop computer which I haven’t switched on in about three days.
So if anyone was worried where I’d got to don’t. It’s just winter and a bit of a writing slump.
These first two photos were taken around Geeveston, at Heritage Park and at the Geeveston Primary School. They are not actually in a lawn but they are garden ornaments. The third one is a topiary bird at Oatlands and the last one is the floral clock at the Botanical Gardens.
I spotted this rainbow this morning when I went outside to wait for my ride to the Op Shop. If you look closely you can just see a second one.
I have been absent from Sarah’s 30 Days, 30 Songs Challenge for a couple of days but I’m back today. June 18th is Paul McCartney’s birthday, a date which is also shared by my sisters in law Libby and Lou (no I didn’t forget). So here is one of my favourite Paul McCartney songs.
Here are a few things I found in my archives that feature the number one.
A single, but very large, chair.
